Spacecraft NEAR Shoemaker in orbit around asteroid 433 Eros found out earlier this month when it recorded its first fly-over sequence. The saddle region of the Sun-orbiting space-mountain appears to zip past the camera in this condensed hour-long time-lapse sequence. The spacecraft was orbiting about 200 kilometers above the asteroid. Movies such as this are scientifically useful for discerning between regions that are naturally dark and regions that have their brightness dominated by shadows.... Topic: asteroid
You're in the center of a very small asteroid field - perhaps the remnants of some dwarf planet or moon smashed to pieces and slowly being pulled back together by the gravity from an unseen mass at the center. Set against a starry nebula, these spinning, rotating and jittering asteroids catch and block light from the nearest star in a dance of radiance. http://www.dvdmenubacks.com.

21 Lutetia is a large main-belt asteroid of an unusual spectral type. It measures about 100 kilometers in diameter (120 km along its major axis). It was discovered in 1852 by Hermann Goldschmidt, and is named after Lutetia, the Latin name of the city that stood where Paris was later built.From Wikipedia.

Kani isn't Tundra. Her friend, Stacey, has gotten mixed up with the wrong people, flying dangerous and illegal "dustrunner" sorties for the mob... and since Stacey's skipped town, Kani's forced to take her place as Tundra. As Kani soon discovers, in this world of asteroid piracy, the real threat is on the ground: violence and paranoia come at her from every side. But after her first nail-biting mission ends in disaster, she starts to realize there's someone else on her team that isn't... Topics: piracy, asteroid, sci fi, thriller, space

Armageddon is a 1998 film starring Ben Affleck and Bruce Willis, and directed by Michael Bay. It tells the story of an enormous asteroid heading for a collision with the Earth, and the rag-tag bunch of oil workers sent up to the asteroid to drill a nuke into it and blow it up before the world gets smushed. But in terms of the science, is it more like training oil workers to be astronauts and saving the world, or a crazy Russian alone in Mir with Space Dementia?

Surviving a tidal wave. Crazy but it might work. If it does what's next? N.Torres 2015 ======= After some research I have learned Efraim Rodriguez has indeed made predictions that did not come true. He is a flase prophet. Yet others have picked up on the meteor scare. It seems there are many so-called prophets who think they can lie in the name of God to further the kingdom, because the end justifies the means. The idea is to cause the most sensational controversy to get the most attention... Topics: Tsunami, Meteor, Tidal wave, Asteroid, Doomsday

The overall risk for any spacecraft system is typically determined using a Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA). A PRA determines the overall risk associated with a particular mission by factoring in all known risks to the spacecraft during its mission. The threat to mission and human life posed by the micro-meteoroid and orbital debris (MMOD) environment is one of the risks. NASA uses the BUMPER II program to provide point estimate predictions of MMOD risk for the Space Shuttle and the ISS....

Author offers a new method for delivery of an asteroid to Earth which is many times cheaper than conventional methods. In this method, kinetic energy is used not only for the braking apparatus but is also used to charge the apparatus energy storage. A small control parachute using the Earth atmosphere for braking the asteroid without high heating, delivers the asteroid to a given point and avoids damaging impact to Earth. Though it is not large, a light parachute decreases asteroid speed from... Topics: Asteroid delivery to Earth, Atmospheric reentry, Space Ships, thermal protection of asteroid and...
This report describes the outcome of Phase 1 of the AMU's Improved Anvil Forecasting task. Forecasters in the 45th Weather Squadron and the Spaceflight Meteorology Group have found that anvil forecasting is a difficult task when predicting LCC and FR violations. The purpose of this task is to determine the technical feasibility of creating an anvil-forecasting tool. Work on this study was separated into three steps: literature search, forecaster discussions, and determination of technical...
